Hi all,

I just want to share with you the cake I made for my youngest daughter's wedding. It is based on a cake by Colette Peters, from her book Cakes to Dream On, and it was the groom's choice. After baking all the cakes (Belgian chocolate cakes), I was told I would not be able to bring the cake into the venue because of dietary restrictions (I do not have a Kosher certificate). So I stuck the cakes in the freezer to be used in another occasion, did not give up and used dummies for this one. In spite of the frustration, this was the cake that I most enjoyed ever making.

That is beautiful!!! I love it!!! I used to do quilling but have never tried it on a cake. My parents' anniversary is in July. You may have inspired me to do a cake for them with quilling!!!

Great job!!!

You did a lovely job on the cake. I think your quilling is just lovely.

So what did you serve at the wedding for cake?

How sad that your daughter couldn't have your cake at her wedding, but what a great solution to make a dummy cake & it is fantastic. Did they get a kosher cake to serve? I actually don't understand how a venue can only allow kosher!!! Is it only a venue for jewish functions?

If you look at the picture of the wedding cake she did...the right hand side has quilling on the butterfly and also on one of the flowers. I noticed that the leaf on that flower has quilling too. It's that rounded, swirl look. She also has the flower on the upper left picture.

Kids do it often for art projects...they take paper and wrap it around a pencil (or similiar) object to make those little "swirls" if you will. Then they glue it on paper or whatever they are making.

Hope this helps. thumbs_up.gif

Wonderful cake. So much work and detail. It is so sad you couldn't take the cake to the wedding, I would have been so depressed and disappointed.
